"Urgence! Urgence! Un sorcier suivi, Newt Scamander, est entré dans le Ministère! Emergency! Emergency! A tracked wizard, Newt Scamander, has entered the Department of Magic!"
— The pictures in corridor in the department.[src]

The Department of Magic was a department in the French Ministry of Magic.

Description

It was found in one of the next two levels under the main level belonging to the atrium.[1]

There was a long corridor that went through this department. It was guarded by pictures on the wall which could detect those walking by and sound a warning when they found an intruder.[2]

History

In September 1927, Newton Scamander was walking in the corridor when he entered the department. He was joined by Porpentina Goldstein, during their infiltration of the French Ministry. Having used Polyjuice Potion to disguise himself as his Auror brother Theseus Scamander, the effects faded and pictures on the wall detected who he was and that he was a tracked wizard. The pictures sounded a warning, and he ran through a door in the same corridor[2] that led to the mailroom.[3]
