I don't see how Jehovah could even put Hitler in Hell. After all:
Hitler didn't do anything Jehovah hadn't already done to the
Midianites before him.

Or, as an alternative, maybe Jehovah's in Hell, paying for what he
did to the Midianites.

Or, another possibility is that old Do-As-I-Say-And-Not-As-I-So
Jehovah has forgiven himself, but does not see fit to forgive mere
mortals for doing the same thing.
