It looks like the interpreter is trying to execute whatever was typed after the callback has finished. E.g.:

figure ()
PushButton = uicontrol(gcf,'Style', 'pushbutton', ...
  'String', "*ERASE History** \n -T.B.C-", ...
  'Units','Normalized', ...
  'BackgroundColor',[1 0 0], ...
  'Position', [0.39 0.0 .2 .2], ...
  'Callback', @EraseHistory);

function EraseHistory(ObjH, EventData)
  FigH = ancestor(ObjH, 'figure');
  Yes = input('Erase the history buffer? y/n(any) >> ','s');
    disp('Yes chosen');
    disp('Nothing happens');
