From Bis zum bitteren Ende(1946) by Hans Bernd Gisevius,

"Abruptly men's spirits changed, A wild national jubilation broke out. ... The glorious sensation of a new fraternity overwhelmed all groups and classes. ... The dreary past was, forgotten, even the oppressive present was hardly noticed in view of the transcendent future of this new, this Third Reich, which was at last being established.
No wonder that the popular rejoicing verged on the ecstatic. Serenity vanished; all rational thinking, all inner restraint, were abandoned. In the end there remained nothing but black and white, good and evil; the whole world was divided into rascals and heroes, the past and the eternal, centuries of ignorance and a thousand years of salvation. Everything ran to superlatives."

(from English translation, To The Bitter End, pp 94-95)

I'm going to guess that The Great War, as WWI was known then, was so bad that it had unbalanced too many people's minds.

So, no; no romance.
