Former DEK Church in Ostrava

German Evangelical Church in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia (German: Deutsche Evangelische Kirche in Böhmen, Mähren und Schlesien, abbrev. DEK; Czech: Německá evangelická církev v Čechách, na Moravě a ve Slezsku) was an independent church body which existed in Czechoslovakia from 1919 until 1945.

In 1930, the church had more than 130,000 members. The Church was mainly Lutheran. It ceased to exist due to the Expulsion of Germans from Czechoslovakia after World War II.
