My first impression was the sculptor was perpetuating the lie that Hitler was a Christian. But maybe the figure is praying to Satan.

The top level nazis were mostly humanists or pagans and Hitler was no exception. I think it was Heinrich Himmler who called Christianity a plague that needed to be wiped out.

Hitler was not Christian but “theistic” in an almost pagan sense. Many times he referred to his destiny being guided by “Providence.” It became more frequent after the events of 20 July 1944. He was clearly not referring to God. In an interesting side note, our own Fuhrer also refers to “Providence.”

He was certainly anti-Christian, but I wouldn’t know whether he believed in God. In any case having him pray in the Warsaw ghetto makes no sense to me. Are the implying contrition on his part? Are they forcing him to appear sorry from beyond the grave and against his will as a sort of punishment? Or is he praying for help in reaching the “final solution”?

Hitler was his own god.

OTOH, Hitler’s regard for both Islam & the god worshipped by Muslims is also noteworthy.
